children need to have some where they call home and for Katy's case, she was left in a rental when her husband still lived, a home brings self-respect and security and can form the basis for health and wellbeing and the chance of a better life. Widows and their children often live in difficult economic, social and environmental conditions which have material,physical, social and political consequences
